cute swimsuits for this summer & 4.99 bikinis!

I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw the price for several basic bikinis on Forever 21’s web site: $4.99 each for tops and bottoms! They have halter tops and basic bottoms in royal blue, and string bikini tops and bottoms in royal blue, a light coral and basic black. While these aren’t the most detailed bikinis you could wear, they’re classic styles for a great price!

 

Forever 21’s Floral Paradise bikini is another cute option. It’s brightly patterned, and although it’s not as cheap as the bikinis above, it’s still a deal at $10.80 for the top and $9.80 for the bottom. The top is even reversible, in case you want to tone down the pattern a bit or de-emphasize a larger chest by wearing a solid pattern on top.

If you have a regular to small chest, a bandeau swimsuit is a cute option for your body. I absolutely love the Purple Multicolor Bandeau swimsuit from Victoria’s Secret! It’s bright, bold, patterned and perfect for the beach. The back closure is adjustable and it comes with a removable halter strap in case you want a little more support or security, since bandeau tops can sometimes slide. Top, $29; bottom, &20.

Another great bandeau option is Target’s Mossimo Polka Dot Twist Bandeau separates. The suit has a retro feel and is available in black, purple, brown and teal, all with cute white polka dots. The top has a removable halter strap, and the bottom has mock ties on the sides, so that you get the cute ties without the danger of the knots coming undone! Top, $17.99; bottom, $17.99.
